INWOOD, W.Va. — West Virginia University Hospitals-East officials gathered on Tuesday with representatives from the Berkeley County Council and the Chamber of Commerce of Martinsburg and Berkeley County to announce the official groundbreaking for a new medical office building in Inwood.


The 10,000 square foot building, on W.Va. 51 at Sader Drive in Inwood, will house two existing medical practices — Apple Valley Family Medicine and Inwood Family Medicine. WVUH-East officials are also considering establishing a satellite office for physical therapy services in the building.

"Our current plan is to relocate our Inwood medical practices to the new office building and offer expanded hours for the convenience of our patients in southern Berkeley County," Anthony Zelenka, chief administrative officer at City Hospital, said in a news release.

The one-story medical building will also have additional space available for lease to a health and medical-related business, he said.

Panhandle Builders and Excavating of Martinsburg is the contractor for the $2 million project, which is expected to be completed in the spring of 2012.
